pet food pouch recycling in Yorkshire

Pet food pouch recycling


Ellie's Fund accepts a variety of pet food pouches for recycling including:
  • All brands of wet pet food pouches
  • All brands of pet treats flexible packaging and pouches
  • All dry pet food flexible plastic packaging
For us to benefit, pet food pouches must be fully empty. If you choose to wash them out make sure they are fully dry before you send them.

Please note only cat and dog food pouches are accepted.

You need to collect at least 7kg of empty pet food packaging before these can be posted. The maximum parcel weight is 15kg.

If you collect less than 7kg of pet food pouches take a look at our different drop-off points throughout the UK here if you're further afield.

If you collect 7kg or more, please parcel them up and email recycling@elliesfund.com to get hold of a free postage label.




What happens to pet food pouches when they are recycled?


Once collected, the aggregated plastic pet food packaging is sorted, shredded and washed. Food residue is composted and the material is then densified into hard-granulated plastic granules. The granules are then extruded so they can be incorporated into the production of different plastic products such as fence posts and benches.
